Subject: He has Covered All the Points

Baba

“Pra’n’ tumi dhele diyechile…” (P.S. #2344)

Purport:

Baba, You have showered Your grace in each and every nook and corner of
this earth. Each and every particle of this universe has received Your
grace. Nowhere remained untouched. Baba, You have showered Your grace. You
have spread Your love with those divine songs of Prabhat Samgiita. By its
music, melody, and resonance.

Baba, with Your divine love, You intoxicated all divinely and swayed
everyone’s heart. And You filled and inundated everyone’s heart with divine
ideation. By Your grace, the devotional feeling got language to express its
heartfelt love to Parama Purusa, and hopelessness disappeared. Everyone’s
heart is now dancing in the tune and melody.

O’, the Controller of everything. With Your longing, with Your ideation,
my whole existence is vibrated.

No one is unfortunate, no one is lowly and meagre. Everyone is floating
in Your mind. By Your grace, everyone is surviving. Baba, You showered Your
grace on all. Everyone is charged with divine love…

== HE HAS COVERED ALL THE POINTS ==

Namaskar,
We must follow Baba in all respects. He has given all that is needed –
period. He has given the sadhana; He has given the social teachings;
and He has given all our days of festival – spare none. There is nothing
that He has not given.

Thus those who foolishly insist that the dogmatic Mahaprayan program
is to be part of our AM culture, knowingly or unknowingly insinuate
that Baba is incomplete or imperfect – as if He forgot to tell about
Mahaprayan.

When in fact we know that Baba as the Parama Purusa incarnate has addressed
everything, including events after His physical disappearance. Yet He never
mentioned one word about Mahaprayan celebration.

Here the point is that we should follow Baba, not groupists.

Now again the season has arrived where various groupist and dogmatic WTs
etc are promoting their so-called Mahaprayan program. Means Baba is eternal
but certain crude persons are trying to impose their dogmatic Mahaprayan
function on the common margiis. Most have rejected this program as it goes
against our basic devotional feeling. And here below is more explanation
about why Baba Himself does not appreciate this Mahaprayan program as well
as other proofs for why it is just one dogmatic function– nothing more.

Mana Vrinda’bane rayecha

Baba, O’ my Lord You are living in the Vrindaban of my heart…

MY QUESTION TO DADAJI

One time I asked my DC [VSS] Dada that, “Dadaji, you told that Baba has
given everything in AM- all the solutions to the problems of the present
world and beyond. But is it that HE might have forgot to tell about this
Mahaprayan (MPD) program, & that is why our Central Dadas introduced MPD
themselves in Oct 1990? Because one margii was telling that ‘how Baba can
tell about His own passing away to margiis and include such a ceremony in
Caryacarya?’ That Margii, Satyadeva, further told that Baba might have
thought that if He Himself will tell to Margiis or disclose about His
Mahaprayan then margiis will cry out. So Baba did not include Mahaprayan
ceremony in CC part 1. Dadaji what is your comment on this.”

WAY OF DOING GURU PUJA

Dadaji replied, “You see, those who got acarya training they know that Baba
as a Guru, HE tells all the do’s and dont’s for His disciples. For example,
In our Acarya diary, Baba says such things which I am giving you the
outline here. While teaching about system of Guru Puja in Senior Ac. diary
appendix, Baba described that if disciples / sadhakas have strong feeling
to offer some worldly things in Guru Puja, they can do it. Even those
sadhakas could give those things to Guru during His physical Presence. But
Baba directs us that AFTER His physical departure then those material
things which we desire to offer to Him, those things should be distributed
to needy people. And if sadhakas are offering some flowers then it should
be thrown into flowing river water. Baba explains all this very clearly in
the Senior Acarya Diary.”

Dadaji said, “So, do you understand?”

I said, “Yes Dadaji. I think as you told that when Guru is physically
present then we can offer worldly things to Him directly. If a sadhaka has
strong desire to do like that. But Baba further directs us that if one has
a strong desire to offer physical objects to Him, our Gurudeva, after His
physical passing. Then those objects should be given to appropriate members
of the society who are lacking those very things. That will be the true
service to Baba.”

“Very good” Dada replied.

CARYACARYA SCRIPTURE IS COMPLETE

Then Dadaji said, “Baba has given the full list of social and spiritual
functions of Ananda Marga in our Caryacarya part 1. This list does not
include Mahaprayan (MPD).”

He continued, “No doubt, some dogmatic people may be thinking that Baba
deliberately did not speak about HIS physical departure because it would
have been untolerable for most of us. But I think this very idea is
completely incorrect. Because when Baba describes about His physical
departure in Acarya training book, then if He would have felt necessary
then surely He would have included this MPD function into our Caryacarya
scripture as well. But Baba did not do so. So according to my logical
conclusion, Mahaprayan itself is negative program and it is not approved by
Baba because it is against the fundamental teachings of Marga Guru.”

“With rational mind one can say Mahaprayan is dogma because it has no
logic, just MPD is one imposed,restricting type of idea. Just see what Baba
says on this point.”

Then I saw in A Few Problems Solved book, that BABA says, “Perhaps you know
what dogma means. Dogma means an idea around which some line is demarcated,
beyond which it is prohibited to go. ‘You will have to accept this
doctrine, you cannot go beyond it.’ — this sort of restricting idea is
called dogma…Remember, you are not alone in this world, not only in this
world but also in this entire universe. This universe is pervaded by Parama
Purusa. We are always sitting on His very lap.” AFPS pt 4, p.23

“So see” Dadaji explained. “Baba tells that Parama Purusa is everywhere;
Baba tells dogma is that which restricts the mind; Mahaprayan says Baba has
departed or gone away; then surely Mahaprayan comes under the category of
dogma.”

WAY OF DOING INITIATION

“Look at it this way”, Dadaji added, “You see when any acarya teaches or
imparts initiation, any sadhana lesson increase, or lesson revision, then
if acarya is proper then they must sit few minutes in dhyan and take the
permission from Baba. After getting permission then one has right to teach
sadhana, especially 6th lesson. So this is the system.”

“But if Baba is gone, left, away, means if Mahaprayan happened, then how
one can get permission? To get this divine permission, we have to see that
Baba is not just one worldly / physical entity. Surely ordinary mortal
human beings die or become gone or pass away, BUT similar thing is not in
Baba’s case. Our Baba is not ordinary mortal He is Parama Brahma. In Ananda
Vacanamrtam part 3 Baba says like this following”:

“Guru, that expression of Parama Brahma that dispels all your spiritual
darkness, is Parama Brahma. That is, Parama Brahma exhibits Himself in the
form of Guru just to dispel your clouds of ignorance and spiritual
slumber.” (Pg 16 AVM 3)

So Baba, being the Parama Brahma, is God incarnate, or Taraka Brahma. Like
this Dadaji told.

BABA IS BEYOND COMPARISON

“When we are preaching others then we preach, that there is no comparison
of the Personality of Taraka Brahma”. Baba says in Namami Krsna Sundaram:

Tula’ va’ upama’ Krs’n’asya na’sti;
Krs’n’a Bhagava’n svayam” (NKS, p.212)

Meaning: There is no comparison of the Lord’s attributions. Taraka Brahma
can be compared with Himself and Himself alone. No entity is similar to Him.
Dada went on, “It is so regrettable that according to our convenience
sometimes we preach that Baba is Taraka Brahma Sadguru, and other times
according to selfish convenience we compare Baba with mortal human being
and think that He passed away as normal human beings do. That is not good.”
“I think that those who believe in Mahaprayan (MPD), they think of Baba as
ordinary mortal. These MPD believers forget their Goal that Baba is
Sadguru, the All-Pervading Omnipresent Being. And that very Baba Shrii
Shrii Anandamurtiji is unparalleled, beyond comparison. Then why we should
compare that very Supreme Entity as normal human being coming under the
domain of life and death?”

“When we are preaching Baba’s stories then we comprehend that idea that
Baba is above all human beings, Baba is living with us and He is helping.
But the next moment when we talk about Mahaprayan (MPD) then we just
overlook the whole spiritual philosophy or devotional aspect and start
thinking Baba as one mortal frame. How ironic!”

THE SUN CANNOT BE HARMED

“If we think carefully then we can understand and we should correct also
that according to our convenience we should not degrade Baba’s status. If
any innocent person will try to spit on the sun in mid-day, you can think
that who will be affected. Surely not the sun. So we should be careful.
Undermining and abusing Baba will not harm Him but ourselves. So my feeling
is that Baba is with us we should not compare Him as ordinary human being
like those who get Mahaprayan etc. Rather our approach should be like how
Baba describes here in Neo-Humanism book.”

Then Dadaji showed me this beautiful passage from ‘Devotional Sentiment and
Neo-Humanism’:

Baba says, “As we have already said, the greatest human treasure is
devotional sentiment, devotional wealth. This devotional wealth must be
preserved….Whenever we see that the pressure of external circumstances
threatens this life essence we should appeal to the Supreme, “O Lord,
please be kind enough to protect our inner vitality from total
destruction-save us from the agony of total loss.” (NH – pg 7)

By this I understood, that we must protect our devotional feeling from the
onslaughts of worldly pressures and events such as Mahaprayan, and we
should ask help from Baba in this regard.

WORDS FROM A SENIOR MARGII

When I was talking with Dada about all this, then one senior margii Ram
Dayalji also came and joined. Then he told some things on MPD point which
was new thing for me.

Ram Dayalji told ‘this invention of Mahaprayan is done with the motive to
create inferiority complex in the mind of those sadhakas who could not see
Baba in physical frame. That is why those central Dadas who were enjoying
Baba’s physical proximity before 1990, these Dadas selfishly thought that
this will be one gaining point in their career. And they can undermine
margiis who did not see Baba before 1990, and such margiis should be
treated as 2nd class margiis and unfortunate one.’

Here is more of what Ram Dayalji was talking:

‘Because believers of Mahaprayan are preaching that Baba passed away, so
now there is no scope to go close to Baba. Or go in His close proximity. So
that opportunity is gone forever. By that way those who could not avail the
opportunity or those who were born after 1990 or because of any reason
those who could not see Baba, they should realise mentally that they are
all unfortunate beings.’

Ram Dayalji concluded, “Excuse me this above approach is not my feeling.
This is the background thinking of those who cultivated the ideas of
Mahaprayan. By that way they think that in AM society they will be treated
fortunate because they lived along with Baba, and those who could not live
in Baba’s physical proximity they are all in subordinated category. By this
way inferiority complex has been injected by introduction of Mahaprayan.”

PRABHAT SAMGIITA:

Closeness Means Psychic Closeness

So after sharing with you all I heard and learned from my respected Dada
and Ram Dayalji, I am ending with one song of Baba.

Those who are devotees, they know that this PS # 3286 “Keu ka’che peyeo”
gives this message that living physically close has no value. Many
physically live close but they are living far from Him. But many live
physically far but keep Him in their hearts.

Keu ka’che peyeo cinate na’re, dure thekeo cene…” PS #3286

Puurport: By getting physically close they do not recognize Him, whereas
some even from a distance recognize His magnanimity. Whereas others by
getting His sweet touch even, then they drown in staticity. And some
without knowing, they unknowingly believe fully in His greatness. O’ my
Lord You are doing so many things for me. You are filling my heart with
nectar. I am so unfortunate that after all this grace I do not recognize
You and remain oblivious…

So let us all be like those A-grade devotees who with deep inner devotion
recognise Baba’s divine beauty and treasure Him always in their heart.

Respectfully yours.
Manoj.

Sam’ska’ra Bhoga

Baba says, “The reaping of consequences of original actions performed by a
human being occurs mainly in the psychic sphere. And if a person attains
the blessings of evolved beings and the Cosmic grace in that same psychic
sphere, the problem is solved. Pain and misery is bound to come. Depending
upon one’s inborn sam’ska’ras and the actions performed, tortures and
afflictions are bound to be undergone – the expression of one’s own
reactive momenta. Tortures and afflictions will not be as severely painful
as before; with the blessing and grace, the psychic afflictions will be
removed. Well, when there is pain and the pain is not felt as such, should
it then be called pain? In this case, in the psychic sphere, one will
remain in a state of bliss. Let the afflictions come. When the affliction
and pain are not felt as such, one should not worry about it.” (PNS-14)

Note: In this materialistic era, people commonly think that those with
money, or those with a big house, or those with name and fame, do not
suffer from any problems, pain, or difficulties. But here in the above
excerpt, Baba is directly telling us that suffering occurs in the mental
sphere– not just in the physical sphere. Because one’s samskara primarily
take expression in the mind. Those problems and pains are undergone in the
psychic strata. Thus no one should think that just because someone is
wealthy or drives a fancy car then it means that they do not have any
problems in life. It is not like that. This dogma we should try to remove
from our social outlook. Because as Baba indicates above, irregardless of
one’s financial position, level of education, or professional attainment,
to one degree or another everyone has problems in the psychic sphere, and
that is how they exhaust their samskaras. So no matter how much wealth one
accumulates in the worldly sphere, one’s mental pain and suffering will not
diminish. Suffering happens in mental realm and everyone experiences it
according to their samskaras. And that suffering will remain until one is
established on the path of spirituality. Thus the only the way to
permanently relieve oneself of any suffering is not to chase after worldly
allurements but rather to get His divine grace. Just a tiny portion of His
grace is enough to free the mind of any suffering. Then one will just be in
a state of peace– bliss. That is Baba’s above teaching.
